Drawings and Templates
Khansforge’s fabrication is done in accordance with shop drawings prepared by the Engineering Department. The general production of these grating drawings are based on the structural drawings or outlines grating drawings supplied by our customers.
Individual grating panels are tagged with a marked number which corresponds to a marked number on the drawing. This marking organism allows grating panels to be identified during the fabrication process. When used together with the grating drawing, it facilitates the correct placement of grating panels during installation.
Sometimes, highly intricate grating areas would require fabrication from a template used to supplement the grating drawing. Customer usually supply templates made from cardboard. In addition to grating configuration, templates must indicate top and bottom sides, and whether or not they represent the size of the opening or the size of the grating. Grating can be fabricated from templates for a nominal charge, over and above the standard fabrication charge.
Assemblies combining checkered, light duty steel grating or heavy duty steel grating can be furnished for flooring areas requiring the solid surface of plate, and the structural strength and removability of grating.
As a result of the rolled in stresses apparent in plate, and the subsequent stress release which can accompany galvanizing, the following limitations apply to steel grating/ checker plate assemblies:
1. Light Duty Steel Grating and Plate combinations will be furnished in the mill finished or painted conditions only. Digression from this policy will be at customer risk, i.e., flatness tolerances will not be guaranteed for galvanised material.
2. In addition to the painted or mill finished condition, Heavy Duty Grating /Plate assemblies having bearing bars 50mm x 5mm or larger can be provided with a galvanized finish.
3. All galvanized Steel Grating/Plate will be fabricated with a 12mm diameter handling/drain hole in one corner of the plate.
